And this Vivo phone is believed to be called waterdrop, or have something to do with that term. The banner that’s shared by the company doesn’t reveal much, but the word; Waterdrop.

Reportedly, the Vivo waterdrop might be an internal code for the Vivo Apex 2 as stated by some Chinese media sources. The Vivo community forum reveals the model number of the device to be EKI1831. There is text on the banner, which translates to – “What is the future mobile phone? Come see 1.24”. The company couldn’t have been vaguer.
When it comes to innovation, there’s no doubt that Vivo has tried and tested many experiments as far as the bezel-less design is concerned. There is one more reason to believe that the new Vivo phone would be called Apex 2. A notorious leakster, Ice Universe has mentioned on one of his tweets five days ago that Vivo could be introducing a phone with codenamed “The Waterdrop”.

But there is one thing that’s for sure, this new mysterious Vivo phone has us all excited for we like to see what Vivo has in store for the smartphone innovation. Less than ten days and we would learn what it is. Stay tuned in for updates on this phone launch.
